Clermont Connections members clean banks of East Fork River

Clermont Connections, a young professionals group, spent a recent Saturday morning canoeing down the East Fork of the Little Miami in Batavia, Ohio.

During this River Sweep, sponsored by the Soil and Water Conservation District of Clermont County, members of CCYP collected bottles, cans, tires, hubcaps, and other trash along the banks of the river as well as from the water and islands.

At the end there were more than 15 tires ranging from toy tires to truck tires. The group also collected over 15 trash bags full of garbage and other materials cluttering the banks and river. This was a great opportunity to help the community, canoe along a beautiful river and have a great time with friends.

Clermont Connections members pose with some of the trash they collected.
Clermont Connections will also be participating in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life June 26-27th and we are looking for people, (21 and older) to participate in the relay!

Clermont Connections, a proud program of Clermont 20/20, Inc., is dedicated to augmenting the business needs of Clermont County's young professionals by engaging in activities and programs that enhance professional growth, leadership development, and provide local public service opportunities.
